South Africa, Cape Town, 16 October 2019; 

ONE&ONLY has introduced their first collection of Private Homes at One&Only Le Saint Géran in Mauritius – offering exclusive freehold beachfront residences for discerning South African buyers. The launch of Private Homes is an extension of the One&Only experience and will feature signature ultra-luxury service within the residential space.

The exclusive community will feature 52 villas set on two kilometres of pristine beach on the resort’s secluded peninsula. The Private Homes, which are available in five different designs from two up to six bedrooms, are architectural masterpieces inspired by their surroundings with the choice of two distinct styles – ‘Modern Mauritian’ with pitched roofs and ‘Contemporary’ which features flat roofs. They all offer spacious interiors over two floors from 280 m² to 758 m² in size, flowing onto private terraces perfect for entertaining, kitchens that can be pre-stocked ahead of arrival, secluded gardens with spots where guests can retreat to, as well as large swimming pools.

Owning a piece of One&Only is something that our guests have been requesting for quite some time, and we are truly going to be building communities and friendships around the world with the launch of our Private Homes,” says Hugues Jannet, Director of Private Homes at One&Only Le Saint Géran. “Residents will enjoy access to all of the experiences available at One&Only Le Saint Géran including the restaurants, well-being at Club One with an extensive Fitness Centre, spinning room, yoga room, padel courts and so much more, to the One&Only Spa, water sports centre, tailored adventures and immersive excursions. In addition, owners will have access to private chefs for special occasions, personal trainers, spa therapists, babysitters and more. The One&Only Private Homes will be fully maintained and serviced by the resort on an ongoing basis, making ownership easy.”  

All One&Only Le Saint Géran Private Home owners will receive exclusive privileges which will ensure attentive and welcoming service. Owners will enjoy priority status for reservations to the resort’s restaurants, experiences and events, the unrivalled service of the resort team, as well as enjoy their very own 5000 m² Beach Club which offers a shop, restaurant and bar, a private pool and direct access to the beach in front of the estate.

One&Only Le Saint Géran has been setting new standards of luxury on the island since its debut. In 2017, the resort was completely reimagined with an extensive renovation that saw this iconic Mauritian resort firmly take its place among the world’s greatest ultra-luxury holiday destinations. The resort offers one of the best locations on the island, along an idyllic coastline with new and dynamic culinary experiences, swimming pools with private cabanas, transformed public spaces, a new One&Only Spa, Club One, and a range of ultra-modern facilities. With the launch of the innovative Private Homes, One&Only Le Saint Géran is taking the next step in its evolution.

Many people are opting for the island life in Mauritius, not only for its beauty, but certainly for greater financial and tax security,” says Hugues Jannet. “South Africans buying a Private Home at One&Only Le Saint Géran will be entitled to a Mauritian Residency Permit. The island is fast paced in its overall growth and offers sound infrastructure – plus it is a short plane ride from South Africa.”
